Midnight Question

She turned her face toward mine, instantly finding my eyes with her own, and softly asked me “If you could do anything, absolutely anything, right at this moment, what would you do?”

I would wrestle the sun from out the sky, and plunge it into the great ocean, watching its steam drift away to the horizon.  Grasping the moon, now lost in the dark with no light upon its face, I would fling it across the heavens to lose itself in the firmament.  Then, with a massive breath, I would blow out the stars, like so many candles across eternity.

“Sweetheart, why would you do all that?”

Because then, in the forever darkness, this perfect night with you would never end.  I would wipe clean the skies to be here with you forever.
